2008: The Year in Photos
In January the kids got buckled into the car for school, backpacks and lunchboxes in hand -- Shea, for the first time.
In February the kids got spoiled all kinds of rotten.
In March the kids and I climbed up Diamond Head together.
This is the view from about halfway up.
In April, still getting used to the whole concept of preschool, Shea cried through most of her Easter parade. Afterwards, her brother comforted her.
By May, Shea had long-since figured out which of Finney's friends were the cute ones and flirted accordingly.
In June, we posed for a family portrait in our backyard because I needed to submit something for my 20-year high school reunion brochure. 20 years.
In July, while visiting California, the kids got to wear fun hats in a photobooth at Frankie Dino's 6th birthday party.
In August Finn kept a keen eye on the competition at his school's jog-a-thon.
In September the kids watched The Red Balloon on my computer, wearing next to nothing and loving it.
In October John showed Shea how he shaves every morning.
In November we all watched history being made by someone who can actually bodysurf Sandy's.
In December I actually talked Shea into wearing a dress AND a hat.
Which she wore for about 10 minutes.
Here's wishing you a fantastic 2009!
